Back in the game

Last week, I had the opportunity to photograph two basketball games at Cumberland University, which is just east of here in Lebanon.

I spent the evening at the gym, sitting on the cold floor and documenting the women, then the men take on another Tennessee college. And I couldn’t have been happier.

I fell in love with sports as a child, playing anything and everything when I was growing up in Memphis. I didn’t fall into photography until college, though, and it was through the student newspaper that I discovered my passion for sports photography. The ever-changing nature of the game attracted me, reminding me of my childhood, and I love the challenges of shooting all the different situations presented in sporting events.

And this passion grew each and every time I photographed a game, a match, a meet, etc.

But, since I’m new in this city, I had not had the chance to document any competitions since I arrived. And last Thursday night was a much-needed treat.

Here are some of my favorite images:
